We are so happy to announce the launch of our newly re-designed Care2.com and thepetitionsite.com! It’s been months in the planning, and after many late nights, our team has launched a beautiful new site. The site is much easier to navigate and really represents the many aspects of how we are trying to help our members make a difference in the world. Check it out!

We have a very rough cut of the Flutterfrog’s flight in Portland.
Also check out the great slide show on Flickr.

From Alex F., designer and pilot of Care2’s Flutterfrog:
For those of you who are wondering how the FlutterFrog’s maiden voyage turned out, it was frickin’ awesome. The audience loved our goofy costumes, and laughed in the right places at our skit. Out trip down the runway was straight, our glide was level and respectably long at forty feet, and I’ve had landings much rougher than ours in commercial jetliners. Ultimately, we did not walk away with any prizes, but we did a better job than most of the teams there, we learned a ton, we had a great time, and we’re *SO* on track for a victory in 2009!
Hopefully there’ll be video of her maiden voyage later this week. 🙂

Graduates usually dread that inevitable question asked by well-meaning family members and friends: “What are you doing with your life now?” As a Master’s degree graduate this spring, I’m actually looking forward to the question, because I have an answer. I’m the newest member of Care2’s campaign team.
In my first two weeks, I jumped right in with campaigns on issues like shark finning, Medicare doctor payment cuts, fighting global poverty and closing the digital divide in America. Working with the other members of the campaign team to communicate with Care2 members about issues that are important to me has been incredible.
Not only do I get to work on progressive issues I support, I also get to explore online communication practices, an area of personal fascination and the subject of my Master’s program. Care2’s members demonstrate every day how the Internet has the power to bring people together for common causes. As a native Oregonian, I was particularly excited to see a campaign to protect the Columbia River Gorge collect public testimony that will make a difference in the place I still consider home.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Care2 team and look forward to helping members make a difference in our world.
